    I'm using FIOS from Verizon. The router is inconsistent. Sometimes it works, others it doesn't, even with all the lights green. I tried rebooting it, unplugging, etc. Overnight, it just started working again. (I also connected a laptop directly to the input cable, and it was able to connect).

    I've gone thru the power-on sequence (cable modem, router, computer), but still no connectivity thru the Linksys router. I can unplug the Ethernet cable from the modem and get on the net by plugging the cable directly into the laptop.



    Also can't reach the Internet when plugged into the back of the router, so even a hard-line connection doesn't work thru the router.

    PS: the router worked great for two years. Then the other day it quit!

Has it worked before? if yes, try to power cycle everything. turn off everyhting then turn on the modem first, then the router, then the computer/s.
if you have power cycled everything already and you still can't access the internet using the router,
- access the router's setup page by logging to http://192.168.1.1 (leave the username blank and the default password is "admin")
- if you're using a cable connection, set the connection type to "automatic configuration - dhcp" and enable the mac address clone
- if you're using a dsl connection and you have a username and password from your isp, set the connection type to "pppoe" then enter the complete username (ex. username@comcast.net) and password given by your isp.
- check the "status" tab of the router and see if there's an internet ip and dns, if so, you should be able to connect to the internet

hope this'll help you.

ciao!

How to connect?


Hello Friend,
Connect you computer directly to the cable coming with the internet.
Type cmd in the start menu and when you reach the command box
Type config in the box
This will display the ipV4 address which should be the internet gateway.
if this is 192.168.1.1 then we have to change the router ip ti 192.168.1.2
please follow this link how to change rotuter ip adress
http://ui.linksys.com/files/WRT160N/v3/3.0.00/index.htm
In the mid of this page router ip should be done to 192.168.1.2
please contact me if this still does not work.

Can't access internet, says I am connected but then says no internet connection


I think you should try to reset and reconfigure the Linksys router and see if that works.

If your Linksys router is old then you can also upgrade firmware on the router.

Connect your computer directly to the modem and make sure that you can access Internet directly through the modem.

Connect the modem and computer to the router. Open the setup page of the router and change the settings manually.

Try this website to setup your Linksys router manually.

I can also suggest you a Fiverr Gig where you can pay only $5 and get support for your Linksys router.

Im trying to set up my router,i have been using it before but my cpu has been damaged by lightning,sinv\ce then i cant use my router. i followed instructions on how to re configure it,my laptop and pc...


sometimes this router are afected by the lightnings, verify that the internet connection is working well by plugin the internet(ethernet) cable directly to your computer, if it gets connected to the internet we are sure the probleme is isolated to the router.
The easiest way to check if the problem is the router WAN(internet) port would be connecting a known good router just for few minutes

I went from a ATT dsl modem to a net gear modem and i cannot get the net ger mode and linksys mode to talk to the computer


Most DSL providers use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections for end-users. To set up a Linksys router, you need to enable PPPoE on the router’s web-based setup page.
To setup a Linksys router with a DSL connection you need to perform four steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the LEDs
  4. Setting-up a DSL ISP on a Linksys Router
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If not, contact your Internet Service Provider.

I just got a Linksys Router and im having trouble connecting to the internet?


hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router


Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

Connecting a modem and router to my desktop


When you connect all the devices make sure you reset them all after plugging them together. Also use a different ethernet cord and make sure your plugging the Modem into the WAN port on the router. If your still having same problem just let me know.
